Levia – Unique levitating marble lamp

What is it ?

Levia is a unique design product! It’s a desk lamp that uses the magnetic levitation system, a method by which one object is suspended on another, thanks to a magnetic field which can combat the gravitational pull effect. It allows the levitation of an LED filament lamp with a very high energy efficiency. Levia’s advanced technology, combined with its amazing design, will blow you away!

The Levia desk lamp is the result of the excellent Italian craftsmanship. The base is made of genuine Carrara or Black Marquina, which is cut by cnc and hand-finished for a polished and beautiful look.

Everything at an affordable price to everyone!

 

 

Simple Shapes, Amazing Design!

 

Levia’s been cared to the last detail.

The stem’s length allows the LED filament bulb to levitate at a height of about 20 cm from the ground and outside the space of the marble base: the effect is a perfect balance between the shapes and the levitation distance.

The centre of gravity is completely unbalanced, because of the metal stem’s extension outwards with the levitation system and the floating bulb at the end. However, it’s perfectly counterbalanced by the marble base. 

 The marble base has also an anti-slip and anti-scratch rubberized support, to avoid scratches and protect the support surfaces.

The sensitive button allows you to switch off the LED filaments with a single touch, by keeping the light bulb in levitation at the same time.

The fabric wire makes what has always been considered a disturbing element, an integral part of the design.

The meticulous attention to detail, the stem’s colors and the different types of marble give Levia a high-level design, suitable to any kind of environment and furniture.

 

With the Highest Quality Materials.

 

The metal stem gives structure strength and support.

The base is made of genuine Carrara marble or black Marquina marble.

  • Carrara marble is a high quality type of white or blue-grey marble,  quarried in the city of Carrara located in Tuscany, Italy.

  • Black Marquinia marble  is a high quality, black stone marble extracted from the region of Markina, Basque Country in the North of Spain.

 Every single piece is cut by cnc and then hand-finished, according to the age-old tradition of Italian craftsmanship, a process that makes the product unique and inimitable.

 

With an integrated anti-fall system and very high energy efficiency.

Levia is managed by 3 electronic boards: one placed in the marble base, one in the levitation system and one in the light bulb. The levitation of the light bulb is very effective and extremely stable, thanks to a bi-directional and automatic management of the device. It makes its use simple, preventing any destabilization at the same time.

We asked passers-by to try to levitate the light bulb to prove the ease of its use. This is the result!

  

 Levia also has an anti-fall system that forces the light bulb to attach itself to the upper part in the event of a blackout, accidental shocks or interruption of the current flow.

 

The bulb has no internal batteries and it turns on via electromagnetic induction. The bulb is warm light. Unlike the cold light, this warm light is often associated with positive feeling and the human mind perceives it as soft and enveloping. Furthermore, it allows less eye strain and it greatly improves the sleep quality.

Levia has a consumption of about 3 watts, equal to about 2 cents a day, and the LED light has a lifecycle of about 50000 working hours . So, if you used it for 8 hours a day for 365 days, the life span would be around 17 years.

 

Levia’s use is very simple!

You just have to bring the bulb near the upper part-from the bottom up- until you feel a magnetic force and the led filaments turn on simultaneously. And now you can let the light bulb float.

As mentioned above, the light bulb has no batteries and it turns on via electromagnetic induction!

If you want to switch off just the led filaments, you just have to touch the sensitive button on the marble base: in this way the bulb will continue to float.

The bulb will attach itself to the upper part instead of falling and breaking in the event of interruption of the current flow, thanks to the anti-fall system.

 

 

Levia is available in 5 different versions. 

  • Basic Version – Black or White metal stem and Carrara or Black Marquinia marble base.
  • Special Versione – Brass-lacquered metal stem and Carrara or Black Marquinia marble base.
  • Deluxe Version – Gold-plated copper stem and Portoro marble base.
